    1883 Liberty Head Five Cents in Pure Nickel
    Judd-1704, Pollock-1908, PR67 Ultra Cameo

    1883 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1704, Pollock-1908, Low R.6, PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. The obverse is similar in design to the Liberty nickel adopted this year, except the stars are replaced with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The reverse has a central inscription that reads PURE NICKEL, surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn. FIVE CENTS is separated above and below with seven stars left and six right. Struck in pure nickel with a plain edge, which makes examples magnetic and difficult to strike properly. Only a few more than a dozen examples are known, making any representative a rare and important acquisition. This deeply contrasted silvery-gray piece is tied with just one other as the finest certified at NGC (10/14). The design elements are fully brought up, devoid of contact marks or other flaws. A highly appealing example of this rare pattern.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AKT, Variety PCGS# 962120, Base PCGS# 62120)

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
